How To Choose A Dog Walker

Hi, I’m Taryn – Founder of Joyful Paws: Eastern Suburbs Dog Walking and Pet Minding

Throughout my life I have surrounded myself with animals of all shapes and sizes. My childhood pets included dogs, cats, hamsters, mice, and fish. My pride and joy was a rescue dog who lived for long walks along the river at the back of my house in South Africa. My love for her inspired me to work with animals.

I have always been dedicated to finding forever homes for homeless pets and I am completely against wild animals of any sort in captivity.
